that the united states government had nothing to do with this video, and i believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. it is an insult not only to muslims but to america as well, for as the city outside these walls makes clear, we are a country that's welcomed people of every race and every faith. we are home to muslims who worship across our country. we not only respect the freedom of religion, we have laws that protect individuals from being harmed because of how they look or what they believe. >> our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is live at the united nations. she joins us now. listening to that speech, it began with a mention of chris stevens, it ended with a mention of chris stevens and it's not lost on anyone watching that the president has two major audiences. he's got an international audience clearly, and he's got a domestic audience during this election. was he able to navigate appropriately between the two with the remarks he actually chose? >> reporter: well, it will depend who you ask, ashleigh, and i think that he within his parame

two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahmadinejad, yesterday told the united nations in a speech about the rule of law that the security council members should be changed. they are allowing, in effect, israel to possess a nuclear weapon, while all the attention is focused on tehran. earlier in a meeting with reporters, he, in effect, again, questioned israel's legitimacy. this issue, of course, has been seen on the u.n. stage here for years. sometimes it's a side show. there are many other points president obama is going to mention, including saying how these attacks based on a video were totally uncalled for in the middle east region and that free speech must be a cornerstone of american democracy. soledad? >> all right, lots to look forw
, a nonstate membership to the united nations. the issue of palestinian state hood was championed in one of wednesday's most highly anticipated speeches, came from egypt. 's newly elected president and the former leader of the muslim brotherhood. he called on the united states to support palestinian rights just as it did the arab uprisings. >> just as you've support the revolution of the arab people, i call upon to you lend your support to the palestinians and their endeavor to regain the full and legitimate rights of people struggling to gain its freedom and establish his independent state. >> don't expect the white house to say much about this or other issues this could further strain relations with israel. the all-important jewish vote is already being put to the test. cnn's pop at this har slow in new york with a look at that impact. good morning. >> good morning, carol. well, we had an interesting night last night, we went to two home jewish families in new jersey to join them for their yom kip pup brepur break-fast. president obama got 78% of the jewish vote in 2008. mccain, 21% of
've had three in a row of the walk-outs. before that we've had the boycotts. today the united states will look a lot like france and these other empty seats, and germany. jill dougherty is an expert on this. she's walking today's action as well. jill, i suppose the question would be what is this all about? does it seem a bit silly? is there a difference between going in in the first place and walking out or just boycotting it altogether? >> not really. i mean, it is, i suppose, a step stronger diplomatically, but the message is there, that they feel that mr. amadinejad speaks about things like israel and really goes over the top. i mean, he has made some pretty outrageous comments over the years and, you know, today could be another one. it's always interesting what is going to -- what he is going to say. but you know, ashleigh, i think we have to look beyond the bluster. we really have to look at this man in terms of his economy, which is in very, very serious trouble. so he can bluster, he can threaten. of course a big issue is his nuclear program, etc. but in the end he's a man in
be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
of the united states being torn down from embassies across the middle east and replaced over sovereign u.s. territory with the flag of al qaeda. you have tens of thousands of people being killed in syria and the administration is doing 234 nothing about it. looks like tehran, 1979, across the middle east. >> that's what many republicans are saying. the democrats and some republicans say governor romney stumbled badly when he criticized mr. obama after the death of the u.s. ambassador to libya. in the end, could you argue that romney's tactic proves successful? it did change the conversation. at least about libya. >> yeah. find it -- fascinating that so many people are talking about romney had a gaffe. it turns out he was right. that one that it was wrong to put pout an n a statement -- criticizing the -- apologizing for the video which the administration continued to do and obama will do again today in his u.n. speech. but also, you know, who had the foreign policy gaffes? it has been president obama. president obama went on "60 minutes" and called what's happening in the middle east bum
of state tonight. addresses the united nations tomorrow. but he's also made some time in his very busy schedule to tape an appearance on "the view." not necessarily everyone is all that happy about that. let's bring in our chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin. give us a little background here. >> reporter: hi, wolf. not everyone is happy because he's not taking any sitdown meetings with other heads of state, including with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the two leaders aren't even in new york city at the same time. the president is making this one a very quick trip before he hits the campaign trail again. heading into a big week, president obama was asked if he's under pressure from israel's prime minister to step up his efforts against iran. he told cbs -- >> i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> reporter: the romney campaign bounced, accusing the president of a chronic disregard for the security of israel. and he's taking heat for this, too. the president arrived in new york a day ahead of his big speech to the united nations. and he sat down f

night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is their position on u.s./israeli relations. >> he has a problem on his hands of major, major proportions, he needs some help. i think that president obama has not given him any help. >> michael, you're nodding. >> i agree. the possibility of iran developing nuclear weapons capab

the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott is with us. what can we expect from ahmadinejad today? will he tone it down or go out as fiery as he always does? >> i think he's going to double down, up the ante, and hear more of the same. previous years he's talked about american officials being responsible for 9/11, talking about that the holocaust never exists. i think he's very sidelined at home. not very strong right now. i think he'd like to use the world stage as a bullying pulpit, if you will, and then when he talks about this new world order, it has a lot of resonance in some of the countries that do feel like the united states and the western countries, the permanent members of the security council, call all the shots. so while he says a lot of things that are, rheric that's very fiery, at the same time, he does have an audience, he's not just speaking for himself. >> people have been asking to tone it down, ban ki-moon -- >> ban ki-moon, u.n. secretary-general said, listen, your last time, w
. of course, his visit, there's always controversy, side stories. the united states has not issued the full complement of visas to the delegation accompanying the iranian leader. about 20 or so according to the iranians out of about 160 people. the u.s. has an agreement with the united nations as the host country for the world organization to allow people to come here no matter the level of dispute. however, the u.s. also does reserve the right at times, especially in tough diplomatic relations, strained relations, and no relations with iran, to not issue visas if it so sees fit. but ahmadinejad has his visa. along with that baggage you mentioned. >> we were showing pictures of the warwick hotel, a posh hotel in new york city. that's where ahmadinejad and his entourage are going to stay. there will be protests outside the hotel later today, right? >> i think so. the warwick has been his latest place of residence. any group that opposes ahmadinejad has always denounced a new york hotel for allowing him to stay there. this has gone on. there was someone who was injured in a bombing who has su
rallied against the western world as well as the united states. let's listen in as he talks about the u.n. as well. >> the need to remove the structural values and encourage the process of universal participation in global management has never been greater before. the united nations looks efficiency to bring about the changes. if this inefficiency persists, nations will lose hope in the global structures to defend rights. if the united nations is restructured international interactions and spirit are collected global cooperation will be tarnished and the standing of the united nations will be damaged. >> want to bring in jill dougherty, our foreign affairs in new york today. you've been watching all this. we have covered in u.n. general assemblies. ahmadinejad always makes a bit of a splash, if you will, but this one, i didn't hear a lot of the kind of fiery rhetoric that we usually do. do you know why he almost seemed to tone it down this year? >> well. tone it down, but maybe our expectations were a little high because after all, what he is trying to do is really lead the charge for t
and we demonize the united states or we do all this stuff, we want you to trust us. in spite of the fact that we won't cooperate with the international regime set up to avoid an arms race in the middle east and set up to avoid nuclear proliferation, we want you to trust us. so they don't have a tenable position. >> do you trust them? do you trust ahmadinejad? >> not on this, i don't. >> his argument is, look, why should america be allowed nuclear weapons, why should israel who never admitted they have them, why should they be permitted to have them, why should many countries be aloud nuclear weapons and not iran? >> then why isn't going for some bigger nonproliferation initiative instead of acting like what he really wants is a nuclear bomb because that will help to get everybody to get rid of their nuclear weapons. no serious person believes that. >> so then here's my question, piers. is what should the united states do? did the two of you get into that? >> we did get into that. and he's pretty diplomatic. he wouldn't directly answer because, of course, his wife hillary is secretary of
's president of the united states. he's a very effective speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker. so, i'm sure, in the debates as last time with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> reporter: what they're trying to do is lowering the bar, expectations, so if mitt romney does better in this debates next wednesday in denver. >> caller: they will say it's a great victory for him. this is what campaigns do. i don't know if americans really care but definitely what the campaigns do. >> curious they're saying mitt romney has absolutely no experience. he participate in 20 debates during the primaries. don't those count? >> yeah. bingo. that's what the obama campaign is doing because they're doing the same thing, trying to lower the bar as well. a lot of their surrogates have been saying similar things. listen to robert gibbs on the sunday talk shows. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in this primaries over the last year. he even bragged he was declared the winner en16 of those debates. i think in that sense having been through this muc
hispanic governor of texas, some people suggesting the first hispanic president of the united states. do you like that kind of talk? can you handle that kind of pressure? >> no, i'd be lying if i said that's not flattering. of course it's flattering to anybody, but the biggest mistake that i could make or anybody could make in this situation is to believe the press. to believe the hype. >> reporter: castro was elected mayor in 2009, and then re-elected with 82% of the vote. now he's 37, the youngest mayor of a top 50 city in the united states. he's also used to the baby face jokes. one of the funnier things that has happened to you when you first met president obama, he jokingly asked if you were the intern. >> that's right. yeah. >> you being asked to do this speech, is that kind of making up for that jab? >> i don't know. i don't know. but i accept, you know, i always got the age jokes at different points in my career. >> is it still happening? >> every now and then. you know, i'm starting to get the gray hair that i need from my 3-year-old daughter and from politics. >> reporter: this
season in the united states, and president obama in a sense because it is so delicate is not going to be meeting with other leaders. hillary clinton will, and she has a lot of very specific things that she wants to discuss with him. >> and she has a lot of clout as well. jill dougherty, thank you. good to see you, as always. as we mention, the clinton global initiative is coinciding with the u.n. general assembly. one of the controversial speakers that we anticipate, of course, the iranian president who will be speaking on wednesday, diplomatic relations with iran at an all-time low now. canada even closed its embassy calling iran and its ties to terror the most significant threat to global security today. our piers morgan spoke with the running president mahmoud ahmadinejad. he asked what he thought of the death of osama bin laden. >> were you pleased that osama bin laden was killed by american movie seals on the instructions of president obama? >> i would have been happier to see a transparent trial, a formal trial, and find out the root causes of all of the events of the last fe
